Apple Store Fifth Avenue sells over 13,000 new iPads in first 12 hours.
by Erick Diaz
Here’s what we’re hearing: within the first 12 hours of the iPad’s launch — between 8AM and 8PM local time — the store sold over 13,000 new iPads, an average of about 18 per minute. Daily store revenue, which typically falls between $700,000 to $1 million this quarter, was up to $11.5 million on launch day.
Holly Cow! Apple hasn’t said how many iPads it sold on the weekend, but over a million units is not out of reach, specially since it was available on so many stores and selling out online.
